Re: Who Can Drive My Car?

Not wanting to muddy the waters but last year i had a long conversation with the owner of a renault agency here and kusadasi.
Re the people driving, his opinion was that the police care less who is driving an ma/mc plate as long as they are not Turkish!
He could not think of any occasion when there has been a problem with non names driving.
Again it was his opinion but does anyone know of an instance where people have been nicked for no name?

Hi,

Which 'goodies' would that be?

We aren't resident (and don't intend to be) but do have long holidays there.

We own a car and pay double what we do for road tax in the UK, we also have to pay for any medical treatment (or our insurers for medical emergencies etc).

Our grown-up children and our friends should be able to drive our car with insurance, but I gather that they are not allowed-it doesn't make sense.

The government brings in huge amounts of revenue from holiday homeowners.

In our holiday home we are allowed to have-water and electricity connected, we are allowed to open a bank account and own a car-but we can't have a telephone-how does that make sense?

The government makes it very difficult for us 'part-timers' but is happy with the revenue brought into the country.

Re: Who Can Drive My Car?

In November we were told by the head of traffic police that we could buy a car with just proof of Tapu. We checked again just before we came out as I didn't want to take a 'wad of cash' out and then have to bring it back,after transferring funds so that they were easily accessible to take out to Turkey, and were told that we now needed to have a residents permit to own a car.

Apparently the logic??? behind this is that if we have an accident we are easily traceable. So I'm allowed to hire a car for two months so what's the difference with just proof of passport and driving licence??

Re: Who Can Drive My Car?

Immac, I dont' know why there is this rule.

The very fact that a foreigner has to have a special number plate is wrong...it makes them instantly recognisable. Why can't they just be normal plates!

Is it the fact that these M plates are a separate entity altogether makes the rule that only the registered owner can drive it?

Re: Who Can Drive My Car?

Alison, this is what confuses me: to get to this point some politician and his army of underlings must have discussed this and said..."It will be a good idea to give foreigners a special number plate, because..." and, for the life of me I canīt fill in the end of that conversation because there is no sensible ending to it.

And the idea that it makes us more traceable does not make any sense with a computerised system that would do it in a second.

Totally agree- this must be something left over from the Dark Ages.... ( fill the date in)
and should be repealed .
